An amazing way to preserve thought throughout time and communicate today's issues for all to see tomorrow. What you write today may be studied 1,000 years from now for not only its content but how you communicated it.

Trial by error ...

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go. Dr. Seuss

One great aspect about calligrahpy you can never practice to much.  Secondly, what you do with your path is limited only by what you limit your self to.

Posting for you all to see the same alphabet written with differenet nibs of the same size.  After working with these nibs I haven't come to any conclusion as to which is a favored as it seems they all have a pro and con to each one.  Each nib will have a time and place for it's use, depending on the paper texture and project.

Tachikawa had the finest finish but requires a heavy hand to write with, while expensive it's worth the extra money for the quality of lettering it produces.

Wrote a basic description and thoughts on the nibs as I went.  This way as I'm working on different pieces I  select specific nibs for finished works. 

To be posted soon is a thank you card done for a co worker who relocated.
